  • Brenna: Hey, Arcadians! I started a community on plug.dj for us. Think of it as a chatroom with a jukebox we can all take turns using. Whip up an account and let me know your account name (it's a private room).

  • Alyss: I hope not!

  • Edgewise: ...Please tell me this rpg hasn't been abandoned for the second time in six years. Please.

  • Edgewise: Omg stay warm, everybody!  ;__;

  • Ingrid: Maybe when they were kids XD
    October 19, 2014, 12:15:33 PM
  • Alyss: Phoebe wouldn't want Vaness to feel bad either, though, or dress up as something she really, really would rather not wear. Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty have pretty dresses, so she'd be perfectly happy going as one of them. ^_^ (And the puppy dog eyes may end up on Roi to go as Flynn. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 01:04:57 PM
  • Alyss: She does - complete with a little bottom lip wibble. ^^;
    October 17, 2014, 12:59:37 PM
  • Ingrid: I bet Phoebe has the best puppy eyes
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:58 AM
  • Ingrid: Oh no ;_; Now Vaness feels bad
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:49 AM
  • Alyss: Phoebe would probably go as Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty since they are both "hidden" princesses like her. (But only because Vaness probably won't go as Elsa to her Anna. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 10:35:10 AM
  • Brenna: Phia will dress as a butterfly, because its the last thing anyone will see coming out of the world's biggest tomboy.
    October 14, 2014, 10:54:38 PM
  • Brenna: Doc Lamya would go as the Ghost of Breakfasts Yet To Come, with a bacon and eggs print shroud.
    October 14, 2014, 10:53:31 PM
  • Ru: That is so awesome.  :D
    October 14, 2014, 06:06:48 PM
  • Pixie: Kivan would go as Liberace XD
    October 14, 2014, 05:50:22 AM
  • Ru: Kit I think might be a total geek and dress up as some historical figure her dad taught her about.  And then be a little confused that no one knows who she is.
    October 13, 2014, 06:52:34 PM
  • Ru: Hmm, I think Seren might go as a zombie, just to confuse the hell out of people.  She'd play it totally straight, and people would STILL find her attractive.
    October 13, 2014, 06:50:57 PM
  • Ingrid: Vaness goes as Flame Princess because of all the Elsa jokes
    October 13, 2014, 01:51:42 PM
  • Pixie: Pwyll would perversely go as his sister XD
    October 13, 2014, 07:05:13 AM
  • Brenna: Autumn Question Times! Cast Masquerade/Trick or Treating! What/Who/When is your character going as?
    October 11, 2014, 08:50:34 AM
  • Ru: Excellent, okay!  <3
    October 06, 2014, 06:36:01 PM
  • Brenna: Triso probably did. Seraita wasn't strong enough to swim, so she mostly waded.
    October 01, 2014, 01:59:40 PM
  • Ru: HEY so just a little question - for those of you with Lost Kids, do your kids know how to swim?
    September 25, 2014, 06:10:07 PM
  • Ingrid: Thank you <3
    September 23, 2014, 09:33:18 AM

    September 17, 2014, 04:28:14 PM
  • Alyss: Please do! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:47:31 PM
  • Ingrid: Okay, mind if I improvise?
    September 15, 2014, 01:46:04 PM
  • Alyss: And I've been trying to find a good flower for Phoebe. I've come up with a few (white rose, lily of the valley, magnolia, etc), but haven't settled on one yet.
    September 15, 2014, 01:02:17 PM
  • Alyss: Pretty! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:00:15 PM

Asteroid Senshi

Who are the Asteroid Senshi?

Nobody knows what destroyed the civilization which thrived in the Vegan system six thousand years ago, but many clues have been left behind in the form of ruins.  One hint that the system is not the same as it was are ancient pictures of the system which has been found, depicting ten planets around the star rather than nine.  But what is not known is that the Cyanean Fields, the Asteroid Belt between Heracles and Ida, is the ruins and debris of the planet Mithras, which was destroyed in the war that caused the ancient Vegans to disappear completely.

When the planet Mithras was destroyed, its starseed was also fractured, and broke apart in smaller pieces - the core piece still remains with the hero Mithras, but the other shards have evolved greater powers since then, and chose contemporary people to bond with the starshard and become the first Asteroid Senshi.  With the discovery and capture of one of the Asteroid Senshi, Sin has become aware of the teamís existence, and is hunting down the remaining Senshi in the group under the belief that if she possesses the power of all of the Asteroids, all of the secrets of Vega will be known to her.  The one Asteroid Senshi is safe while in Sinís custody on Arcadia Station, but likely does not enjoy his or her imprisonment, and longs to find the rest of this team they supposedly are part of. 

Asteroid Senshi do not have the weapons skills or raw strength of the other teams, but make up for it by having more magic.  They are also masters of weather, and most of all, they are the masters of lost and hidden things.  Asteroid Senshi are naturally good orienteers and even if they donít like adventures, they tend to be natural explorers.  They have powers that help them navigate a ruin they have never seen, and often are sensitive to the traps and pitfalls nearby.  They are instrumental in uncovering the secrets of Vega, which will give the Folk and the Resistance an advantage in this war against Sin.   

While the Resistance Senshi are named based on demi-gods of Greek myth, the Asteroid Senshi are based off of Greek mythological figures who were famous for turning into beasts, plants, or creatures.  This is in part because they are connected to Mithras, who was a mythological figure born from a stone and who became a master of beasts.  For example, an Astroid Senshi might be Sailor Arachne, who might have a fuku with a cobweb pattern on it, a history that somewhat echos the mythological figure's, and a sphere related to Competition or Arrogance.  The player can choose which myth they want to use; this list at Google Drive offers some possible choices and suggestions on colors and spheres.

FAQ

So one of the Asteroids must be captured by Sin?  What kind of conditions do they face?  How were they found out?

Yes, one of the Asteroids must start the game as a prisoner aboard Arcadia Station, where they will be watched by security and tested on so that Sin can analyze their starshard and powers.  However, the strictness of their imprisonment is up to the player.  If the character is crafty and pretends to go along with Sin's plans, they will be awarded more freedom than usual.  A rebellious Asteroid won't necessarily be tortured (Sin would not want to accidentally kill or mentally damage her subject), but they will be awarded no favors, and will have a lot less freedom.  Either way, the Asteroid will be taken out of Arcadia Station on occasion, either to test their powers against Coppelia, or else to accompany a team of Sin's researchers to a ruin.  So there will be opportunities for the Asteroid to interact with other players in the cast until they have the chance to escape.

How the Asteroid was found out is totally up to the player.  It could be that their family sold them out, suspecting that they were really a Revolutionary Senshi, but Sin realized that they were something different altogether.  They could have used magic by accident in public, and got arrested.  They even could have been a Resistance member who was captured by the government and scheduled to be turned into a Coppelia...up until scientists noticed that something was very different about their soul.   

Will there be an actual asteroid in the Cyanean Fields named after my Asteroid Senshi?

Even better - a given Asteroid Senshi can have a planetoid!  The Cyanean Fields are more similar to Sol's Kepler Belt than it is the Sol Asteroid Belt, so there are larger objects in the Cyanean Field, and the possibility of planetoids similar in size to Pluto or Eris.  Scientists of Vega are aware of the planetoids and even think some of them might be inhabitable, but the debris and chaos of the Field has made it difficult to send manned flights there.  The large asteroid or planetoid in the Asteroid's name also has its own ruin, and likely some kind of power-up for the Asteroid Senshi within it.


So there is a figure from Greek mythology I like, a person that was turned into an animal/plant/thing, but I don't see them on the Asteroid List.  Can I still apply for them?

Yes!  It shouldn't be a problem so long as they follow a convention similar to the other Asteroids listed.  And if you have trouble thinking of colors or Spheres, you can ask for help at the forums.


What are in these ruins that is so important?

For starters, within the main planetary ruins on the major planets, the Revolutionary Senshi will find their power-up items, the World Eggs.  On the asteroids/planetoids that correspond with an Asteroid Senshi, they will find their own power-ups.  In all of the other ruins scattered across Vega's planets, moons, and even ancient abandoned spaceships, will be all of the magitech weaponry and technology left behind by the Ancient Vegans, some of which is even more sophisticated than human technology.   And considering that Sin is a brilliant engineer in addition to the queen, having more of that Vegan technology fall into her hands is a very bad thing.  The Senshi may also find spaceships and weapons, which they can use to help the Resistance.  We can also make up more stuff as we go along.


Is Mithras the leader of the Asteroid Senshi?

Not officially.  If it just so happens that the Asteroid Senshi characters have a lot of respect and admiration for Mithras, then he might become their commander.  But it is equally possible that Mithras resents them for taking pieces of his power, and wants nothing to do with them.  It depends on how gameplay goes.
